Well, that is no small job.  xref table rebuilt, the size tags in the dictionary
for the stream of the fontfile obect changed, the font disassembled, and the
subrs array parsed *recursively* (subrs can call subrs, etc...) to catch all
subrs references, etc...


Better for Thanh to "fix" this in pdftex.  I really don't think pdftex is broken
w.r.t. to gaps in the Subrs array, because the spec. is unclear on this issue.
But die to the reality of the situation, its best if Thanh accomodates what
Adobe is now doing.  And I'll ask the Adobe font guys to fix their documentation
in the Type 1 spec.
